LOS ANGELES PSYCH-ROCK BAND
CONFIRM TWO NEW SHOWS ON THE HEELS OF INTIMATE EVENT
AT SWING HOUSE STUDIOS IN HOLLYWOOD
Offering a dark-and-brooding, slow-and-rolling musical experience, XU XU FANG debuted new material from their forthcoming full length debut, due in the spring of 2010, at an intimate event held at Swing House Studios in Hollywood on Thursday, July 30. The 10-piece band packed the studio and created an environment as surreally David Lynch-esque as their sound.

XU XU FANG is also set to perform two more shows this summer while preparing to record their debut full length album. Led by producer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Bobby Tamkin–who previously played with The Warlocks and Hovercraft and operates Culver City, CA recording studio The Sound Ranch—the band will play in Los Angeles as part of The PabLove Foundation (http://pablove.org) benefit show with Great Northern on August 13 at the Bootleg Theater and then on August 17 at The Echo.
SEVEN DAYS NOW was released physically this spring and, in addition to “Your Way,” features the band’s cover of The Cure’s “Fascination Street.” Of the recording, LA Weekly wrote that the band “…transform ‘Fascination Street’ into a deep psychedelic meditation. It's a beautiful recording. (12/8/08)”
